    CPU: 3570k
    RAM: 8GB
    Video card: HD6950
    Windows video card driver: 13.4
    Mac/Linux video card driver: 13.4
    Dota 2 advanced video settings: low on both

    Windows 8 fps: 150-200
    Ubuntu 13.04 x86_64 native fps: 40-80


    The game is very glitchy on Linux, first time I started the game I could see the map but the river was white (missing) and the second time and third time I started it I couldn't see the map at all. I could see the HUD, player and creep health bars but the map was completely black. Load times were normal.

    I had 60+ fps yesterday (linux) before I went to bed. After the small patch today its dead steady at 30 fps, using ~35% of GPU.

    3300k
    HD6970 Catalyst 13.4
    Arch linux 3.9

    Dual monitor setup seems to make dota suffer somewhat. There is also desperate need to confine the mouse pointer. Since the patch I got graphical glitches, missing water in river (flickering kinda), shrubs and random rocks dropping out of the sky around mid lane. Was looking as good as on windows yesterday tbh, albeit with the lack of pointer capture.

    Thanks for all this data - please post your hardware and OS info even if you get the same FPS on Mac and Linux. It helps us figure out which systems are affected and which are not.

    We're tracking issues on AMD hardware on OSX in this bug: https://github.com/ValveSoftware/Dota-2/issues/50

    CPU:AMD Phemon II X3 720 BE
    RAM: 4GB
    Video card: ATI HD4770 512MB
    Windows video card driver: Catalyst 13.1
    Linux video card driver:Catalyst 13.1
    Dota 2 advanced video settings: Both at 1920x1080, All max on Windows, Low on Linux.

    Windows fps: 47
    Linux native fps: 15
    Linux wine fps: Too many artifacts, wine and catalyst never mixed that well for me.

    Dota 2 is the worse on Linux, L4D2 runs better in low/meduim settings and it's playable. But still too far away from windows performance. Worse than that, AMD stopped caring about the legacy driver.

    By the way, this is a brand new Kubuntu 13.04 install.

    Where are you guys tracking Nvidia hardware? I posted in that thread as you mentioned Nvidia info being something you were looking for,

    Also the massive performance boost I saw using mat_queue_mode "2" has disappeared since the recent update. Stuck at 15-22 fps now, was getting 60+ last night.

    CPU: i7 950
    RAM: 6GB
    GPU: nVidia 480 GTX
    Linux proprietary driver version: 319.32

    Windows FPS: 90-125
    Linux FPS: 50-80

    I got a 120Hz monitor and it's really annoying to not have at least 100fps.

    And the textures look blurry in Linux even with the textures settings on high. (I'm not talking about graphics glitches)

    You guys really need to make sure you are using the proprietary drivers, and have them installed properly.

    http://www.phoronix.com/scan.php?pag...013_gpus&num=1

    You might want to check your /var/log/Xorg* log files to check for the fglrx and nvidia drivers are actually being loaded. You might find that what you thought was properly installed was actually not. Don't forget in order to get the proprietary drivers installed you need to have the linux-headers installed for your running kernel. So if you are running a hwe kernel or something else you may have to explicitly install the headers.

    Here's a step-by-step guide for AMD card users.

    Video card: NVIDIA GTX 670
    Windows video card driver: 320.49
    Mac/Linux video card driver: 319.32
    Dota 2 advanced video settings: Everything set to Max

    Windows fps: Up to more than 300 without limit, always around 120 with limit, drops down to 80-60 if I do extreme stuff in -wtf mode (like placing lots of Dark Seer walls)
    Linux native fps: More than 100 in the fog of war, drops down to 60-80 if I come across units, even less FPS if I'm standing at mid last hitting creeps
